The testimony by the firefighters indicate that THEY were not the ones who did the assessment of the integrity of the building. They were told by someone else that the building was going to come down. WHO was the person(s) making that assessment? That person was not named, nor was the basis of their judgment questioned.
It seems to me that the firefighters were relying on a single source of information about the integrity of the building and were taking orders. If so, then the directives given by that single source would be consistent with the idea of a preplanned demolition.
